Your internet connection when you leave IU campus housing

If you are leaving campus housing at Indiana University, either for the summer or permanently:

  • If you used a network cable provided by UITS (IU Bloomington only): Cables provided by UITS are proprietary and will work only with the IU network. This type of cable resembles a telephone cord with larger connectors at each end (this should be a yellow, blue, or gray cable). If the cable was already present in your room at move-in, you do not need to remove the cable; simply wipe any dust off the cable, loop it, and tie it with a rubber band or twist tie. If you received the cable from the SCIPS in-person desk, return it after moving out.
  • If you provided your own network cable: If you're in campus housing at IU Indianapolis, or in one of the facilities at IU Bloomington where cables are provided by residents, you can of course take the cable with you.
Do not plug the other end of the network cable into the phone jack; this will damage the phone jack.
